DIY: Bullion Crest Tuxedo Flats

The change in weather means my toes are going into hibernation. That’s right no more pedicures for the next 6 months! It’s time to put away those embellished sandals and pull out those fancy flats. I’m a lover of crested flats. Something about them makes me feel regal. It’s like I’m a member of the royal family just because I’m walking around wearing a pair of flats with my “family crest” on them. Anywho, I’m  currently obsessing over a pair of YSL embroidered flats, but since I don’t have YSL kinda money I had to give my $20 pair of Target flats a serious make over. Now I obsess over my DIYed Target tuxedo flats! I hope you enjoy the how-to video for this super easy, super chic project. Subscribe to my Youtube channel if you’re a fan!!

Materials: Flats (available at Target), Metallic Bullion Crest, Fabric Glue, Clamps

This project is soooooo easy. Crest + Glue = new fancy flats!! Allow the glue about 30 mins to dry before you wear them.

Bring on the change in weather. I’m ready!

  3. I had the same idea in mind and I found my flats for $5. I can’t decide to do the the patch, spikes, or tassels on them. The patch seems to be the easiest so maybe I will start there. Thanks for the tutorial!

    This is such a great idea. I’m going to try my first DIY project ever. What size crests did you use?

    • I believe they’re 2 inches. I brought the flats into the store with me to make sure they fit!
